|Oracle Java CAPS Master Index Processing Reference Java CAPS Documentation|
Oracle Java CAPS Master Index provides a flexible framework that allows you to create matching and indexing applications called enterprise-wide master index applications. It is an application building tool to help you design, configure, and create a master index application that will uniquely identify and cross-reference the business objects stored in your system databases. Business objects can be any type of entity for which you store information, such as customers, patients, vendors, businesses, inventory, and so on.
When you create a master index application, custom database scripts and a custom Java API are automatically generated based on the information you specify in the wizard and the configuration files. Both the database scripts and API are derived from the object structure you define. For example, if you create a master index application with an Address object, the database scripts will define a table named SBYN_ADDRESS and one named SBYN_ADDRESSSBR. The Java API will include a class named AddressObject that includes “get” methods for each field you defined for the Address object.
Oracle Java CAPS Master Index provides features and functions to allow you to create and configure master index application for any type of data. The primary function of Oracle Java CAPS Master Index is to automate the creation of a highly configurable master index application. A wizard guides you through the initial setup steps, and the Configuration Editor allows you to further customize the configuration of the master index application. The components you need to implement a master index application are automatically generated.
Oracle Java CAPS Master Index provides the following features:
Rapid Development - Rapid and intuitive development of a master index application using a wizard to create the master index configuration and using XML documents to configure the attributes of the index. Templates are provided for quick development of person and company object structures.
Automated Component Generation - Oracle Java CAPS Master Index automatically creates the configuration files that define the primary attributes of the master index application, including the configuration of the Master Index Data Manager (MIDM). Oracle Java CAPS Master Index also generates scripts that create the appropriate database schemas and an XSD based on the object structure you create and configure.
Configurable Survivor Calculator - Oracle Java CAPS Master Index provides predefined strategies for determining which field values to populate in the single best record (SBR). You can define different survivor rules for each field, and you can create a custom survivor strategy to implement in the master index application.
Flexible Architecture - Oracle Java CAPS Master Index provides a flexible platform that allows you to create a master index application for any business object. You can customize the object structure so the master index application can match and store any type of data, allowing you to design an application that specifically meets your data processing needs.
Configurable Matching Algorithm - Oracle Java CAPS Master Index provides standard support for the Master Index Match Engine. In addition, you can plug in a custom matching algorithm to the master index application.
Standard Reports - Oracle Java CAPS Master Index provides a set of standard reports with each master index application that can be run from a command line or from the MIDM. The reports help you monitor the state of the data stored in the master index application and help you identify configuration changes that might be required.
